Diversity Goggles: Examining the Literacy Development of Black & Latino Youth from Critical Multicultural Perspectives [$] Forum/Update/Assembly, Preconference/Institute Moscone Convention Center
3007 (W)
Description :

Although libraries can play an important role in helping to ensure that youth have the literacy skills they need to succeed in school and be ready for college or careers, research suggests that Black and Latino youth often feel disconnected from their school and public libraries. This half-day workshop will examine how teen services professionals can better support the literacy development of youth of color through library programs and services. Participants will use “diversity goggles,” provided by the presenters, as a tool to examine librarian perspectives and practices towards Black and Latino youth, with the goal of improving their understanding of how to better meet the needs of these youth . The workshop will feature a panel of YA authors whose work speaks to Black and Latino youth experiences. These authors will not only discuss their work, but will also engage in the broader conversation concerning ways to better support Black and Latino youth through libraries. Authors who will be participating include: Kekla Magoon, Isabel Quintero, and Adam Silvera. This workshop is sponsored by the Young Adult Library Services Association, with funding from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation. Facilitated by Dr. Kafi Kumasi and Dr. Sandra Hughes-Hassell.
